It looks like a decent product but the top comment made me pass:

"This product is junk. The reason that the sockets are arranged in line with the power bar instead of at 90 degrees to it is because they are not individual NEMA rated sockets. There are three long formed bus bars, one each for the hot terminal, neutral and ground that run the full length of the bar. The problem with this arrangement is that the formed contact portion of this bus bar does not grip the prongs of an electrical plug securely. Consequently if mounted vertically or upside down there is the tendency for a heavy plug like a wallwart to just fall out. Even inserting a plug seems to be problematic and difficult. Very poor design and due to poor contact may even overheat and prove to be a fire hazard. Note that although this product is stated as being UL approved it is not CSA approved which is usually a more stringent qualification. Very dissatisfied with this purchase."

I bought one of these from prime cables a few months ago. Mounted it on the wall behind my tv so I could more easily reach the outlets behind my entertainment unit. I too saw the above review and was worried that the outlets would be loose and plugs would fall out. I am happy to report that so far, it has worked perfectly. I have not had a single plug fall out and it is sturdily mounted to the wall. In my case, the outlets are vertical, and nothing is falling out. These are not outlets that I touch often - perhaps the previous reviewer was using theirs in an area where it was being touched more (like on the floor under a computer desk where your feet would kick it)? Personally, if I had the need for another I would definitely buy this product again.
